Mel Mansfield

Executive Creative Director

(she/her)

As a creative and a human being, Mel is #goals. Mel is a fantastic leader for the creative team. She has more than 25 years experience art directing, designing, and creative directing. Not only can she direct everything—from video production to website design—she does it all collaboratively with her team. Mel gives everyone the space to make cool shit and make mistakes, but she’s also always there to provide support and feedback. Mel is also the queen of having weird things happen to her on the reg. There’s very rarely a day Mel doesn’t have an awesome anecdote about her neighborhood, her sons, or her life in general.

When she’s not in her gorgeous office, Mel is momming three grown-ass children, being an armchair sports enthusiast, hiking, SUPing, snowboarding, obeying all requests from her dogs, and designing.

Describe your favorite coffee mug.

I have two, actually. They each have the face of one of my dogs, Coco and Bella. I choose which one I'll drink out of based on which dog is being the biggest asshole. I drink out of the nicer dog's mug to make a point. It's safe to say I could use more human interaction.
